Bad review racist says Royal Shakespeare Company

Daily Mail’s Quentin Letts accused of ‘racist attitude’ in theatre review

The Royal Shakespeare Company has accused the Daily Mail’s Quentin Letts of a “blatantly racist attitude” for suggesting an actor in one of its productions was only cast because he is black.

In a review of The Fantastic Follies of Mrs Rich, Letts said Leo Wringer was miscast and went on to criticise the RSC’s “clunking approach to politically correct casting”.
